MFT February Product Launch....

Its Release Day at My Favorite Things!  This months goodies are so much fun!  I have a card today...to share in my love of hugs. :)

MFT February Product Launch

I used Blueprints 27 to get that gorgeous scalloped card front.  I masked off the scallops and stamped the flowers with a green stem and then with a pink to match my watercolored "HUGS".  I stamped the sentiment in black so it would pop from the light card base and then added the HUGS sentiment with foam tape behind it so it has some dimension.

Tips:  

1. Mask edges of any card base or card front with the full adhesive post its like THESE.
The full adhesive backs will help anchor your card to your table and make ink blending easier.

2.  I cut the HUGS out of a scrap watercolored practice sheet I had laying around.  Sit and make several watercolor sheets and let them dry.  Next time you need a sentiment die cut, you have all these gorgeous watercolored sheets ready to go!

Hope you find these tips helpful!  And I hope you have fun shopping over at MFT!  Head on over to the MFT blog to see more of this months release.  Thanks so much for coming by today!
